As the Northeastern portion of the United States prepares to be rocked by Hurricane Irene, analysts are already predicting the potential financial impact of the storm on the already struggling American economy. As Irene follows a path similar to that of Hurricane Bertha in 1995 and Hurricane Floyd in 1999, experts are comparing the potential damage and costs to those storms. Bertha cost $371 million worth of damage nationwide, while Floyd accumulated $4.5 billion. Some lawmakers contend, however, that regardless of the expected damage, Americans do not need the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Texas Congressman Ron Paul was interviewed Tuesday on Fox Radio's Tom Sullivan Show and took the opportunity to restate his position that the naked body scans and enhanced pat-downs by employees of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) are unconstitutional.

After fierce public outcry erupted over video footage of a baby undergoing the invasive Transportation Security Administration pat downs, the TSA finally announced that it would be making changes to the screenings to which children will be subjected.

As if New York Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner was not in enough hot water for his illicit online relationships with numerous women, the Congressman also tweeted with a 17-year-old high school student from New Castle, Delaware, according to news reports.
A branch of the AFL-CIO confirmed last Friday that the Office of Management and Budget is in the process of considering unionization. The largest office within the executive branch, the OMB is a primarily neutral entity responsible for overseeing the preparation of the federal budget and supervising the administration of other executive branch agencies. It prioritizes funding and assesses competing funding demands among agencies. Because the OMB is responsible for what The Blaze calls "White House number-crunching," its unionization could pose problems in terms of the number crunching being nonpartisan.
